An instant New York Times bestseller--from the award-winning author of the Graceling Realm series--about adventure, grief, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

"A wild gift for readers who like books that take them to unexpected places."--Melissa Albert, author of The Hazel Wood

Jane has lived a mostly ordinary life, raised by her recently deceased aunt Magnolia, whom she counted on to turn life into an adventure. Without Aunt Magnolia, Jane is lost. So she's easily swept away when a glamorous, capricious, and wealthy acquaintance from years ago asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at the extravagant island mansion called Tu Reviens.
Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." What Jane doesn't know is that the house will offer her five choices that could ultimately determine the course of her life.
One choice leads Jane into a heist mystery. Another takes her into a spy thriller. She finds herself in a gothic horror story, a space opera, and an extraordinary fantasy realm. She might fall in love, she might lose her life, she might come face-to-face with herself. Every choice comes with a price. But together, all the choices will lead her to the truth.

One house. Five choices. Limitless possibilities.

Read Jane, Unlimited and remember why The New York Times has raved, "Some authors can tell a good story; some can write well. Cashore is one of the rare novelists who do both."

For YA and new adult readers who want something different or have "read it all," Cashore's newest delivers a challenging storytelling framework with an ending that pays off for the work. Consider Blake Crouch's Dark Matter as a read alike for older teens.

I found this book unusual and enchanting. Though it is perhaps too strange to appeal to everyone, I do recommend it for the more adventurous reader who enjoys genre-bending novels.

I made it to page 115 before giving up ... the story was so convoluted, and filled with so many 'mysterious' characters on 'mysterious' missions, I could not bring myself to care even a little bit about what was so special and wondrous about the house they've all congregated in. Skip it.

I couldn't get into this book; between the main character being an umbrella artist, and all the rich people having non conversations, I had to tap out. Why does no one have direct conversations with the other characters? What is magic about this mansion? Why keep reading? Why indeed.....

Honestly, I am a huge fan of Kristen Cashore's Graceling series. I've read and re-read all three books and absolutely loved them, because she has a gift for creating a great storyline and having the skill required to execute it. So when I saw this book on a library shelf, I eagerly grabbed it and headed home as soon as possible to start it. However, the beginning, no matter how well written, was quite boring. As much as the idea of five alternate realities appeal to me, I didn't get past the first fifty pages before tossing the book aside. Sorry, but this book just didn't capture my attention.

This was an interesting book. However, from the synopsis and the way the story starts it is impossible to anticipate where this book will go. It becomes a tale on how a seemingly minor choice can have drastically different outcomes. As the novel explored each choice available to Jane in an innocuous conversation with her friend the scenarios just became increasingly stranger. At first, the story seems to be a simple realistic fictional mystery. Then it warps into some odd science fiction options that fit outlandishly within the framework of the original story. As a result, I had a hard time getting through this book - not only was it slightly repetitive, but it just started to get weird. The last two choices were especially strange and just left me shaking my head in the turn they'd taken with the story. Not quite what I would have expected from Cashore after the wonderfulness of the Graceling realm series.
